    Fixing Gel-Coat cracks

    So i bought a new ski for a stupidly good price, but there are some hairline cracks in the gel coat near the foot pads..... I am not at all familiar with how to go about fixing this, whats the process like? It is on the silver part...

    Thanks

    x2.....ive got some spider webbing on the outer tray bumpers of my blaster, and am not sure how to repair them. On normal impacts, you pull away the loose stuff and reapply fiberglass/gelcoat as needed, but what is the correct method of fixing hairlines?

    SOMEONE please chime in.....

    and congrats on the ski

    for hairline cracks usualy what is done with a die grinder and bit remove some of the gelcoat in the hairline crack then clean up all the debris and such then place the gel coat in the crack trying to keep it as flush to the surface as possible for less sanding. then blend to your standards then polish it up to match the other surface.

    That sands off the paint though right? I dont know how easy it is to find paint to match the RX silver unfortunately

    I used this site (recommended from another member) color matched perfectly. Just sand down area and follow instructions.
